Thanks Steve,

I did use the Cumulus Edit ->All Time records / Monthly Records / This Month's records / This year's records. This had made the records show up in cumulus but not the website.

If you have any other ideas let me know.

cheers

That's very odd; the data displayed in Cumulus is the same data that supplies the web tags. It can't somehow keep the old values for the web tags while displaying new ones itself. Perhaps there's a problem with the updates to your web site? Could you give a link to it, please?

Are there any errors in the latest diags log file?

Hey Steve,

I removed all the errors from the dayfile and the corressponding logs, simply deleting large swaths of entries where weatherlink had put a --- as the sensor had died for a few of the outdoor instruments.

After doing this i get no more flashing red error lights. However i still don't see any data prior to october 2013 in the weblog, all the records do appear in the cumulus program if you look at them from there.

let me know if you think of anything, i'm thinking i'll try a re-installation of the software ,does that sound good?

cheers

Could you please do the following:

1. Install the latest version of Cumulus; you are using a very old unsupported version
2. Run the all-time editor again to fetch the values from dayfile.txt
If the problem still exists:
3. Attach a screen shot of your all-time records from Cumulus (View | Highs and Lows | All time)
4. Attach a copy of your alltime.ini file
5. Zip up the diags folder and attach it

When you say you can see the updated records in Cumulus, you do mean on the all-time records display from the View menu, rather than the extracted values in the editor? You are actually applying the extracted values using the 'copy' buttons? You have read the help for the editor screens?

Hey Steve,

I went and updated to v 1.9.4, however i believe my problem was not copying the records from my dayfile to the records table.

Sorry i did read the help file briefly but did not follow it well. I did not see a copy button and when i clicked "Fetch log / dayfile data" I saw a whole bunch of data appear which i thought to mean it had been updated.

May i suggest you put a big "Copy fetched data to records" button near the fetch button which would update all records at once.

Looks like i still have some erroneous data in there which i'll weed out now. Also the "Records began on ..." listing is still wrong. I guess i need to look into the webtag ( <#recordsbegandate>) for that and figure out why it isn't updating. Any tips?

cheers

I did mine the other day. Only a couple of errors and those months had very little data.

I found it best to put the WL files in directories by year before converting. Then it's a lot faster as you don't have to keep scrolling down for the next file to convert. Did 15 years worth in about an hour.

The files started in 1998. I had a weather monitor before that but no PC then. :)

Steve, first of all thanks for WLConverter: it's a very useful applic.

Reading this thread I remembered that years ago I was fiddling with a vbscript, that could start a
GUI from the command-line, and also send "key-presses" to the GUI.

Fortunately I still had this script, so, for those who don't want to convert each .wlk-file "by hand", I changed it
so you can use it to convert all wlk-files in a folder.
The script + a readme are in the attached zip-file.

Regards,
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.
Kees.

Thanks for that, it saves me the bother of modifying my code, which I don't really have time for at the moment :)
